Interesting to learn of your thoughts on mating success - that walk-away splits are more reliable. Is this because you only have the odd queen trying to mate compared to a larger number when you graft, perhaps?
Comparable mating success... I wouldn't say it was a higher success rate but about the same.

I find with grafted queens they don't have such a high supercedure rate as the walk away splits
